  1. Necro again with another great old Mod. Anyone interested in the Zenit line, this is a mod that was done very well. Just thought I would bring it back out again to see if someone with the know-how could get it running again. It is very well done and one of the only dedicated mods for the Zenit 3 SLB. Edit: Tested it out and other than a couple of minor details like the craft file needing an update and during launch, the fairings explode instead of separating, it appears to be working.
  2. @Nertea How would I turn all tanks that have boiloff into ZBO tanks? I like the idea of using the realistic effects of dealing with these fuels, but I don't like the tanks that have a constant boiloff with no way of controlling the rate. I just want to have all of these types of fuel tanks require electrical cooling. Several of the tanks I use boiloff and cant be used for long duration flights, except I really enjoy some of these tanks and need them for those long duration flights. I have read as much of the cfg files I can but only understand the basics. With in the CryoTanksFuelTankSwitcher and the CryoTanksModularFuelTanks I have read, "Adds ModuleCryoTank to CryoTanks included built in ZBO tanks." with the module, MODULE { name = ModuleCryoTank // in Ec per 1000 units per second CoolingEnabled = True BOILOFFCONFIG { FuelName = LqdHydrogen // in % per hr BoiloffRate = 0.05 CoolingCost = 0.05 } BOILOFFCONFIG { FuelName = LqdMethane // in % per hr BoiloffRate = 0.005 CoolingCost = 0.02 } } } and the other that includes the extra line "CoolingCost = 0.05" MODULE { name = ModuleCryoTank // in Ec per 1000 units per second CoolingCost = 0.05 CoolingEnabled = True BOILOFFCONFIG { FuelName = LqdHydrogen // in % per hr BoiloffRate = 0.05 CoolingCost = 0.09 } BOILOFFCONFIG { FuelName = LqdMethane // in % per hr BoiloffRate = 0.005 CoolingCost = 0.045 } } What do I have to change to make all tanks ZBO to give me control of all tanks that use evaporative fuels? Thanks as always. Even though I have made it clear to many times, thank you for Keeping KSP fun for this community. At this point your name is synonymous with my KSP play times. I haven't started a playthrough with out your name being attached to it for 90% of my time.
  3. Sorry about the Necro but I could not find a thread showing you had taken control of this mod, if you have? Linux I couldn't agree more to an update for this mod. These RCS sounds really are enjoyable to listen to instead of the stock ones which are indeed.... horrible. If you can spare the time in that already immense portfolio of Mods you maintain it would be appreciated.
  4. Any one know if the license has been relaxed on this mod? If any one knows how to contact the owner, it would be great if some one picked this up and made it available to the community. Its a great little mod that deserves to stay alive and offering those of us that play stock size, relatively Arcadish versions of KSP. I say "Arcadish" lightly as KSP cant really be considered "Arcadish" at all. Linux if your out their, take a look at this one to see what you can do. Thanks to all of you that have created these wonderful Mods. Most of us only still play due to your hard work and creativity. So Thank You very much.
  5. Hey Nert, its been a long time. Amazed and thankful your still here sticking with it and making our game so much better to play. Enough praise and sounding like a Kiss A$$ but KSP and Nertea go hand and hand. Could I get a link to the old capacitor skins please. The older versions were just better in my opinion. Again man, cant say it enough, thanks for the hard work you put in.
  6. I have used the winch, with a high ejection force and length, to shoot the grappling hook to a mountain climb that my rover wasn't capable of ascending. I have also connected the grappling hook to the edge of a cliff and winched my rover down to the bottom. I have built major Rovers with trailers, cranes as well as all manor of winching needs. How ever without the grappling hook I would have to get out, climb the cliff, attach a pilon, attach the winch to pilon to get my rovers up the mountains. I NEED THE GRAPPLE HOOK good sir. One last thing PLEASE, could you bring back the insitu struts. I always put them on my ships that have docking ports. 3-4 way placement with the same on the intended docking craft. EVA out and link them up. It gave me one more reason, thing to do while building and flying.
  7. When watching some youtube channels, you get the guy saying things like, "Hey you gotta smash that like button" in the tone of a 5 year old with enough volume to jump your headphones off your ears. I was wishing I could smash the like button for this pack and its advertisement value. Nice job and thank you, hope it plays well. Been missing one since Bobcat days.
  8. I was just coming to scan a bit of the thread and got a glimpse of the patience you must need @Kartoffelkuchen . Reminds me of having 8-10 kids that are five to six years old, at a birthday party, surrounding you. Sorry buddy, Thanks a ton for your hard work.
  9. My Dad was Chief of Flight Operations for a major airline. He used to be responsible for 1300 pilots. He told me once, that he would bring in certain pilots with a similar personality trait that I believe you have. He would fire them, then give no explanation or reason. Of course it was all in a brief for the pilot in question. So then I asked him why, he said, "Because they would attempt to argue with you". I think people that are inherently disagreeable make great lawyers, but not to much for an industry that needs people that can "make a decision, build the thing, test it all up, then iterate ". to quote Tater. Zoo buddy, I am going back to listening to Chris Cornell sing a few of my favorite songs, click the old close button, and forget your name. Tater, hate to point you out as I am kinda a bad example to be associated with but thanks for your attempts at some great subjectivity.
  10. I can't believe someone would quote me on a misstep of sts launch numbers. I am not a politician or public figure that needs scrutinizing. The STS-51-L was the correct number and everyone can see or look it up. I know I am a horrible representative. The point I don't think I'm relaying here, is the impact a company like SpaceX has had on the "Entire" Industry. Ask anyone off the street back in 2010 "Hey, ever heard of SpaceX", most would be clueless. Try it now. Wasn't one of the main reasons for the Space Program to provide support for itself? I suppose someone could twist words around well enough to say "No". If I have learned one thing about the internet, its that someone out their will take my words(Cause I suck at writing)and twist them for their own agenda. Tater can you explain to me, why its not cool to be a Fan Boy of a man like Elon musk? By no means am I asking you because I think your on SpaceX's side, I see you being objective. Guys I am not hear to be right, nor am I here to get people to like what I say. I am here to learn, to see good objective discussion. How can anyone compare SpaceX to NASA? You cant. They are entirely different beasts. But you can say, SpaceX has been one of the best ventures to come along, for the future of space travel, in a very very long time. Why would anyone argue that?
  11. I know this is a thread primarily about the SLS program, but I couldn't help after reading many of ZooNamedGames comments. After reading this entire thread, I am amazed at some of the "flame" sent Musks way as well as some super natural way of ignoring what SpaceX has achieved. I come no way near the understanding or knowledge base of the material at hand, but maybe someone with a bit more vision (Yep Vision) could define the achievements made by SpaceX over the last decade. What I have seen from Elon Musk, is a bit of an over zealous time schedule, but almost "EVERYTHING" that man has claimed they will do, they have. You can take every technical spec, data sheet, test results based on real time testing, or virtual, and what I see is people forgetting the Human factor. The desire to be inspirational exc. I love Nasa, and watched 2 shuttle launches, was sitting in my science teachers class during the loss of STS-41-D. I believed getting rid of the shuttle was a mistake, due to the fact, we at least had an incredible functioning flight system getting people to and from the ISS. Now I can easily profess to be a complete SpaceX/Tesla fan boy, and I don't think saying so is a bad thing. Maybe this is because, no one company has done as much to disrupt and place a positive outlook on its field as much as "Tesla" or "SpaceX". Just happens to be run by the same visionary..... yeah both companies. So maybe, the next time you think of slamming SpaceX, you might want to consider how much they have done for the advancement of the industry. Again, I love Nasa, but if you go by SpaceX's track record alone, for their pure speed and performance record, the simple Human drive to change the world, then my money is on SpaceX. Just 2 cents given here. I really don't care what people think of my comments, because at the end of the day, my opinion means about as much as yours. Hell, in my case, yours probably has quite a bit more technical relevance. But it has been a complete Joy watching a good guy win again for a change. Side note, my favorite parts packs are with out a doubt, SLS variants. I used Bobcats for a couple years.
  12. PLEASE, if your getting a response from Bobcat....  Please ask for the American pack.  Man I cant tell you how bad I want the Ares he built.  It was beautiful and came with an incredible pack.  His rovers were cool as hell and I miss him and his work.  Please, maybe a donation to encourage some one to dedicate their time and energy into it.  If you cant tell I am on my knees begging for the American Pack

  13. Tried and ran into the same issues most of you are facing. In the alt f12 log I am seeing a constant spam with a typical line of something invalid and not loading. Until this is fixed, our dreams of a clean outer planets mod is done for. PLEASE FIX, as this is a most important feature for some of us. Being able to be immersed into the higher fidelity of these beautiful planets and bodies are all that we can ignore. Dren, from Beautiful Cascade Mountain Range in Oregon.
  14. Sorry man, got to reply to this as a Thx. Its helpful to get good education in regards to realism as well as plain enjoyment due to correct gameplay information. My nose is not shading brown, I really do enjoy your info and great involvement in our community Nert.
